Opening Alert: Ken Ken Ramen Opens Suika Bento Cafe Next Door

The Mission's 18th Street Gourmet Ghetto has just gotten even tastier with the arrival of Suika, this new quick-service Japanese lunch cafe from the Ken Ken Ken Ramen crew that slings affordable packaged bento boxes, Japanese snacks (such as cheese mochi) and boba milk teas (courtesy of the Boba Guys) located just next door to their ramen shop; for now, it’s only open Wednesday-Sunday from 11:30 AM- 2 PM and offers just a handful of daily changing offerings (such as kimchee, karaage and saba), along with some Asian-style desserts and frozen custard in rotating flavors such as Four Barrel and Thai Ice from the Frozen Kuhsterd dudes; the wood-lined storefront is primarily set up for take out, but there a few tables for those who wish to linger.

Suika Bento Cafe: 3378 18th St.; 415-967-2636
